Fortunate enough to have seen them twice, in broad daylight. Once in the 80's on a farm in the Mara district along the Soutpansberge, driving through the veldt, and again about five years ago out walking on a hunt. Limpopo somewhere, can't remember exactly.

These are always fun to watch in my opinion, Anastomus lamelligerus

Not seem them too often. But first looking at the name I was totally wrong - "lamelligerus" immediately took my thoughts to "Lammergeier", aka the bearded vulture.
